Sima and her in-country team achieved the impossible: to get an independent American traveler (me) into Iran!

Sima and her in-country team achieved the impossible: to get an independent American traveler (me) into Iran! They said it couldn't be done outside of a group, but S.H. Journey made it happen. Better yet, they found the perfect guide for the three week, 4000km journey. 65 countries so far, and this was the best trip of my life. Thank you Sima, Ehsan and Pouyan.

The creativity of an artist, the precision of an engineer, the experience of a savvy traveler, and her passion for service makes Sima of SH Journey the ideal journey designer!

In the midst of creating her own complex tour this past summer, Sima acted with amazing speed after she and I decided on my destination during a sabbatical trip I was about to take. Literally within 17 minutes I had my tickets and tour material emailed to me and I was on my way to a very very memorable Spain/Morocco/Portugal tour in a week. The creativity of an artis, the precision of an engineer, the experience of a savvy traveler and her passion for service makes the Sima of S.H. Journey an ideal voyage designer! She is kind, easy to work with and experienced. What more can one ask for?!

Organizing and conducting our workshops required many months of planning across multiple disciplines and she did a fantastic job accomplishing all tasks.

I had the pleasure of working with Sima when she arranged a momorable trip for us to Costa Rica, as well as working with her professionally in organizing and conducting workshops on optimal health. She is meticulous, conscientious and gives attention to every detail, while not losing sight on the big picture. And she does all that while embracing the whole experience with genuine care and love. Organizing and conducting our workshops required many months of planning across multiple disciplines and she did a fantastic job accomplishing all tasks. It's a joy to work with her.

In spite of the different budgets, Sima was able to negotiate a package for us, which worked for everyone while didn't compromise the quality of the trip and experience.

A few members of my family and I wanted to go on a Safari in Tanzania to celebrate a milestone birthday and cross out a major item off of our bucket list. In spite of the different budgets, Sima was able to negotiate a package for us, which worked for everyone while didn't compromise the quality of the trip and experience. Most importantly, given her extensive experience in the travel world, I trusted her judgment and felt totally taken care of. With much gratitude to Sima Hashemifar at S.H. Journey for her relentless efforts to create a trip of a lifetime so much more memorable.

Deep appreciation and gratitude to Sima and her travel team for the special care and attention that went in to organizing our fabulous trip.

"Expanding our hearts, minds and spirit, and bridging our worlds"

This is how I felt the entire time I was in Iran with my American friend, and we just can't stop talking about how transformative the trip was now that we are back in America. Deep appreciation and gratitude to Sima and her travel team for the special care and attention that went into organizing our fabulous trip. We were able to experience with peace, ease and comfort the true essence of Persian Culture, food, art and history on our 4000 kilometer journey that lasted over 3 weeks. It was one of the best travel experiences I have ever had. Thank you Sima for all your time, effort and energy that went into tailor making this amazing trip for us. It will be with us for ever.

The amount of enthusiasm she puts into planning the trips makes you feel like you are a part of her family.

My family and I feel so lucky to get to know Ms. Sima at S. H. Journey. Last year we worked with her for the first time and had one of the most amazing trips of our lives to Costa Rica. Let me just mention a couple reasons that we decided to ask Ms. Sima to plan our trips: 1. She has gone to the most of the places in the itinerary that she designs for you and that is very important. 2. The amount of enthusiasm she puts into planning the trips makes you feel like you are a part of her family and the only reason is that her work is her passion and that she enjoys her job. 3. She listens to you very carefully with wisdom and patience in order to figure out your trip objectives and then she plans accordingly. 4. Each time you call, her warm and trusting voice from the other side of the phone is soothing; a quality that makes you comfortable about your trip. 5. She is very flexible in case your plans change. We are looking forward to have her as our mentor as well as a good friend for traveling around the world!

Never did we have to wait for transportation or stay in long lines to visit any of the sites as Sima had made all the necessary arrangements with the local tour companies.

I had heard many good stories about the vacation cruises that Sima organizes but it wasn't until I took the Mediterranean cruise with her this past summer that I realized how true they all are. The ship that she had chosen was a first class ship with high end cabins and gourmet dining at a very reasonable price.  She had arranged for excellent land excursions at every port with knowledgeable and entertaining tour guides. Never did we have to wait for transportation or stay in long lines to visit any of the sites as Sima had made all the necessary arrangements with the local tour companies. What differentiates Sima at S. H. Journey with other travel advisors is her attention to details and the care and love she puts in for every individual in the group. I have found my travel Planner!

I'd like to thank S. H. Journey for being instrumental in creating the memories that will never be forgotten!

If you want to have the most extraordinary experience on a trip, I'd definitely recommend Sima. My family and I have had sima make all our travel arrangements for many years. She always goes above and beyond to make sure we get the best deal and best experience. Her tours and cruises are amazing for sure. Sima plans everything perfectly and is always on top of every detail. The hotels she chooses are the best. She always selects the most educated and knowledgeable local tour guides. My family and I went to Costa Rica on one of Sima's tours last year. The trip was very organized from the resorts to adventures. The activities were amazing!! We did water rafting, zip lining, rappelling down the waterfalls, and once again Sima brought together an extraordinary group of people for that trip. I am going to continue going on the tours and cruises that Sima puts together because I can't see myself traveling any other way. I'd like to thank S.H. Journey for being instrumental in creating the memories that will never be forgotten!
